General Education

United Tribes Technical College

The General Studies department at United Tribes Technical College (UTTC) is comprised of a department chair and faculty who teach the general studies courses that are part of every certificate, diploma and degree program offered at UTTC.

General Studies includes courses in Humanities, Native Studies, English, Speech, History, the Natural Sciences, Social and Behavioral Sciences, Mathematics, Computers, Foundations (First Year Experience, Fitness, First Aid/CPR) and developmental education. All of the General Studies faculty have degrees in the area in which they teach.

The General Studies courses at UTTC are aligned with the North Dakota University System, which means most will be accepted for transfer at other tribal and public institutions in the state of North Dakota. For more information about which courses will transfer, contact the college or university where you intend to transfer and ask which courses they will accept.

The General Studies Department Chair participates in the North Dakota General Education Council, a statewide discussion of general education review and reform. For more information, refer to the Council’s Constitution at the link below:
